Course Descriptions

BASIC TECHNICAL MATH (2301)
Basic Technical Math presents the topics of arithmetic with whole numbers, common fractions, decimal fractions, percentage, measurement numbers, metric and English unit conversions, scientific notation, exponential operations and basic algebra - including the use of formulas and equation solving. The course is self-paced utilizing a text/workbook. Students may pretest to determine their skill level, with those meeting the competency level receiving credit for the course.

CONCEPTS OF TECHNOLOGY (2803)
This course is intended to provide the technical student with a background of basic physical principles applied in modern technology. Topics in mechanical, thermal, fluid power and electrical systems are covered - along with their respective integration.
Prerequisite: 2301

BLUEPRINT READING & SCHEMATICS (8006)
Covers all types of blueprints, schematics, and symbols used in industrial plants. Discuss machine parts and machine drawings, concentrating on compound rest and clutch-brake control. Examines hydraulic and pneumatic, piping and plumbing, electrical, and air-conditioning and refrigeration drawings, introduces sketching used in industrial plants. Discusses air-conditioning and refrigeration systems, including explanations on electrical/ electronic-control schematics. Prerequisites – 2301

INDUSTRIAL MAINTENANCE WELDING (1906)
Students will learn the safe and correct procedure in three types of welding (arc, oxyacetylene and mig and tig welding). Topics covered will include welding safety, making sound welds, selecting filler metals, preparing metal for welding and procedures for all welding positions.

MIG AND TIG WELDING (1905)
This course is designed for students to learn the proper techniques, skills and operations of mig and tig welding and selection of supplies. Topics covered will include safety, operation of equipment, types of shielding gas, troubleshooting and welding in all positions.

PIPE AND PLATE WELDING (1915)
The student will be exposed to the proper techniques and procedures used to weld type and plate in the flat, horizontal, vertical and overhead positions using the arc welder. Topics covered will include standards and tests for pipe welding, horizontal welds on beveled plats, overhead welds on plates and pipefitting.
Prerequisite: 1906

INTRODUCTION TO METALLURGY (1703)
This course provides the student with an understanding of how ferrous and non-ferrous metals are smelted, cast, formed, alloyed and heat treated. The fundamentals of metallurgy, grain size, carbon-content effect and hardness testing devices are presented within the course. The tests for different alloys to determine the effect of heat treatments will be included.

OSHA 10 & INDUSTRIAL HEALTH AND SAFETY (2202)
This course will discuss and demonstrate the importance of understanding and applying Industrial Safety principles and practices in the work environment. This training includes defining and discussing safety concepts, terms, and definitions; recognizing best practices in accident prevention; understanding who is responsible for safety in the workplace and why. You will also learn how to recognize workplace safety hazards and how to deal with them. You will learn how to use specific tools in the workplace, what machine and chemical hazards are and how best to deal with them, and how to properly use personal protective clothing and related to PPE. OSHA 10 certification will be available.

INTRODUCTION TO COMPUTERS (3035)
This course is designed to introduce the student to the basics of a personal computer. Topics covered include computer hardware and background (1st session), Windows basics (2nd, 3rd and 4th sessions) and a look at the four main areas of software (word processing, spreadsheets, databases and presentations - 5th and 6th sessions).

HUMAN RELATION SKILLS (2102)
This course will explore principles of human relations related to personal and occupational goals. Human relation principles to be explored include team skills, creative thinking, communications, goal setting, conflict management and self-image.

COMMUNICATION SKILLS (2106)
